Palace Picture Hall, Eyres Avenue (Armley) (80 comments)
Black & White image1970. View of the former Palace Picture Hall, shown here as The New Western Bingo Hall, located in Eyres Avenue. The building was opened as an 800 seater cinema on Monday 26th August 1912, advertising as the "Finest Picture Hall in West Leeds". The premises, formerly Armley Rink, had been completely re-designed under the personal supervision of Managing Director, Councillor Ezra Hoyle. The opening film was 'The Governor's Daughter' and seats could be booked in advance for 2d (1p). Ticket prices were 2d (1p), 4d (1.5p) and 6d (2.5p). One thousand people attended the two evening performances on opening night. It was described as "the most healthy and comfortable hall in the distict, breathing area 500 cu.ft to each person when the hall is full", also the management boasted that "persons entering while the pictures are being exhibited are shown to their seats by young ladies who have electric flash lights." Part of the building was converted into a dance hall and a cafe was attached. By 1937 the dance hall had been converted back to a skating rink, operating alongside the cinema. The Armley Palace Picture Hall closed on Saturday 22nd August 1964 with a showing of 'Summer Magic' starring Hayley Mills. The premises were subsequently converted to the New Western Bingo Hall. Here, it is advertising a £400 jackpot.
